            5.0

            Firstly I found that the the location is great, near at the city centre, safe and quiet. The staff was very helpful, the room was quite spacious and well equipped and also relished from a invigorating view. The breakfast was pretty decent as well.

            Obviously there are drawbacks. In the seventh floor the corridor light was non existent, also using the corridor I realised that it really is poorly lighten in the extend of having to watch your step. The ergonomics of the room is not well thought of, also the carpet in my room was dirty and finally in the shower the water pressure is very low, add to this a constant change in the water temperature and washing up becomes an arduous experience.

          • Single
            8.8

            The hotel is located in a quite area, just in the center of the city. Subway stations are within walking distance from the hotel (around 10min). The staff was very kind and helpful. Overall, it was nice to stay there.

            Nothing in particular.

            Great location with easy access to the main tourist sites of the city. Quiet neighborhood, friendly and helpful stuff, spacious rooms.

            7.8

            The rooms were comfortable, clean, and very well set up. The AC worked well and we loved having tea and coffee facilities in the room. The breakfast also had a lovely amount of variety. Would stay here again.

            It was a bit of a walk to the metro, but once we got there we got around town fairly easy.

          • Couple
            9.2

            at a quiet location, yet very convenient access to metro, shops, restraunts, etc.

            stuffs are very friendly and helpful.

            9.6

            Excellent location and very friendly and helpful staff. We had booked a junior suite but were upgraded to a big suite due to full hotel. The suite was luxurious and clean, nothing more to ask for really!

            The location. Safe, calm, and the lively Mavili Square just few steps away.

          • Single
            5.8

            Hotel is in a good location and is well appointed - near metro to the centre of Athens. Breakfast offered was good if a little limited and the room was spacious.

            The air conditioning did not work so the temperature in the room was close to 30degC. Despite several requests for it to be fixed, this was not done and the staff merely shrugged when told about this on check-out. This is unacceptable incompetence for a major hotel chain in a capital city. If you intend to stay in Athens during the warm months, you might want to avoid this hotel and find one with a functioning cooling system - unless you enjoy sleeping in a sauna.

          • Couple
            5.4

            Breakfast is great. The way that they heats up the milk for coffee is fantastic.

            Matress is old and has body indentations that disrupt sleep comfort. Hot water is in-consistent. AC unit doesn't work.

          • Single
            9.2

            Nice staff, Big room, good location, complete breakfast

            Sounds from other rooms was some times disturbing. Elevator was very small.

            9.6

            superb location near the centre and the metro, but quiet and off the beaten path- great sized rooms with wooden floors
